Going on the State of Education show Saturday


by David Safier

I've been invited onto the radio show, The State of Education, hosted by Robin Hiller, Saturday, KVOI, (1030AM), from 11 to 11:30am.

We'll be talking about Al Melvin's SB1239 I've written about lately, the bill that esssentially gives Utah's Imagine Learning a $30 million no-bid contract to supply Arizona elementary schools with a K-3 reading program for children who are below grade level. We'll also be talking about Brewer's Performance Funding scheme that amounts to educational class warfare, rewarding schools with high income students and punishing schools with low income students. (By the way, I just learned the plan is now on the floor as SB1444, but I haven't had a chance to look it over yet.)
